Spotting

Description:

Round, black and eventually turning white

Habitat:

Open miost grass

Notes:

It rained for almost two whole days, when suddenly these mushrooms started growing in a lawn at my university. It started off completely black. The next day white spots started appearing all over the top surface. The third day, most of the mushrooms had almost completely turned white.

Probably Bovista. It looks like a puffball.
